Latch Key Kids Kare

Latch Key Kids Kare Owner: Lorraine Pike Address: 2100 S. Taylor St., Little Rock, 72204, 666-4545 Start-up date: Aug. 28

Owner Lorraine Pike says Latch Key Kids Kare in Little Rock is "designed to give a greater sense of security to young students and peace of mind to working parents."

For a $15 annual fee and $25 per month per household, Latch Key Kids Kare will verify that children have returned home from school and will be a personal contact for "latchkey" children who need assistance.

An emergency response system, coordinated with local police departments, and a sick-child service, operated in conjunction with area public school systems, are being developed.

Pike also plans to implement counseling and tutoring programs.

Pike, who has five years of experience counseling troubled youth, says Latch Key Kids Kare will be geared toward working parents who find after-school care impractical or too expensive.
